Excellent collection of culturally authentic (currently 2600+) images. Entries are divided into categories and subcategories. Nouns only, no verbs (that I found). Site may be browsed or searched. Images may be copied and used in presentations, etc.

Technical Remarks:

Search engine worked well. Each item linked to Leo and Wikipedia, when available.
